Size but also brand of speakers matters...

I currently have 6 1/2 Diamond Audio S600 in my M3 without any major mods. I also tried MB Quarts 5 1/4 without any problems, but some beands such as Focals may require more modification even for the 5 1/4 midranges due to their depth. Your best bet is to figure out which brand of speakers you would want, then ask the board for opinions.

depends on the speaker

my installer said focal polykevlar will fit 6.5 inch in the front of sedans. But like anything if you go focal utopia 6.5 are near impossible in the front.

I have Boston Pro 6.4 in the front doors. Both woofer and tweeter fit perfectly and sound nice too

I got the MB quarts Q series 5.25 up front... The other day I compared the stock HK speaker to a 6.5 MB quart speaker from their DSD line and they were the same size. The bolt paterns on the stock speaker was the only thing that over hanged the Quarts when I had them facing each other.
